Approximately 32 miles north of Atlanta, is Milton, one of Georgia’s newest cities. Though Milton has long been thought of as an unincorporated part of Alpharetta and Roswell, it is distinctly its own suburb. As a highly affluent city, Milton is full of beautiful homes and recreational activities for residents to enjoy.
The History of Milton
Milton received its cityhood in 2006, after years of being referred to as part of neighboring cities, Alpharetta and Roswell. While the city is still clarifying its identity, streets and establishments that were once thought of as Alpharetta are now considered Milton.
